Yes, I tried installing on Disk 0 and Disk 1. None worked.

Haven't got as far as removing 1 hard drive and I followed theog's guide, it booted from UEFI.

I might try buying a new set of blank disks just incase it is faulty media.

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself?

Confirm the ISO integrity or download another, burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

You can also write the ISO to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu, boot stick using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen, under USB, Removable or HD's.

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life

I downloaded a different copy for each disk and burned 2 from IMGBurn and one from built in ISO Burner.

Though the disk had 3 partitions not one and there was also another Disk.

Do this again and post back a camera snap or type out verbatim the listings on each partition and disk shown.

This sounds like the partitioning given by the correct UEFI install, so perhaps you chose the wrong partition or deleted the needed special MSR partition.

Or if you hadn't booted install using UEFI steps then it may need to have all partitions deleted to create New and Format, or just click Next to have the installer do it for you.

I'd also try the flash stick install to rule out the installer.

Did you have both HD Drives as Unallocated Space?
Than did you do Step Two in tutorial on Disk0?

You would want to choose Partition 3 if the partitioning scheme appears as above in Theog's screenshot. This should enable 64 bit install if EFI is functional on your mobo.

Yes I got this but I also had disk 1 and chose Partition 3 of Disk 0, then did the same for Disk 1.

This happened from both hard drives using a DVD-RW 4.7GB Disk.

"Windows cannot install the required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation.
